Women's Soccer Plays To Scoreless Tie
NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-The third time wasn't the charm for the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's soccer team when they hosted Connecticut College in a non-conference match at Cressy Field Tuesday evening.
The Corsairs' third consecutive double overtime match ended in a scoreless tie.
UMass Dartmouth outshot the Camels, 19-9, but senior goalkeeper Amy Lowitt (Baltimore, MD/Roland Park Country Day School) made nine saves. Corsair junior goalkeeper Krista Chauvin (Seekonk, MA/Seekonk HS/Stonehill) made five saves in recording her fourth shutout of the season.
"We played a strong Connecticut College team today and I feel we matched their intensity and physicality," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Nicole Hanewich. "I'm pleased with our effort once again, as we possessed the ball well and controlled the pace of play. We had plenty of opportunities, but we were unable to capitalize and get that final toe on the ball."
UMass Dartmouth is now 4-1-1, while Connecticut College is now 0-2-1. The Corsairs will return to action when they host Wentworth Thursday. The Camels will visit Trinity Saturday.
